 This workshop will focus on creating better compositions from your photo references and how to take better photo references. We will start with group discussions and focus on a variety of different types of proven compositions. We will look at some master paintings and some of your paintings: discussing what works, what doesn’t and suggestions for making it a show piece. You can complete any changes at home or in your studio as this workshop will focus on creating strong compositions.

Pencil and eraser
